    For 3G phones, SHSHs are required for 4.0 and up

    2G can't go higher than 3.1.3, so no SHSHs at all necessary

    Put another way: To load anything 4.0 and up, SHSH blobs are required for all. To load anything less than 4.0, SHSH blobs are not required for 2G and 3G users

    Thx Annex...

    First, how do I create an ad-hoc network?
    Second, I have read that once you set up tethering, the iPhone can't be turned off. Otherwise it loses the tether and you have to re-do the whole process.
    These are the questions I was referring to.

    So what your saying is that if I mess up I can restore the 3G iPhone back to 3.1.2 with no problems? That is just weird..... Apple is queer.

    ^Yep. For any 3.x FW load: easy for 2G/3G users, 3GS users need SHSH blobs, 4 are 'out of luck' (haha).

    That's right. You may have an error near the end of the restore but that is nothing a quick kick out of recovery from tiny umbrella can't fix.

    Always load a custom 3.x IPSW because it preserves your baseband for the unlock (Cydia/Ultrasn0w)

    R u gonna do the MyWi route or the other way?

    MyWi has been definitely worth it for my laptop and wifi iPad!

    I'm going to give mywi a try but I'll save saradalton's method.

    I don't need to unlock it just to get it to tether 3G service for the laptop.
    But that's good info to know. Thanks for the heads-up.
